IRS form 941 begins with your FEIN (EIN.) Then your business name (not the trade name), then Trade name(if any), etc.
Some taxpayers are confused between the "Business Name" and the "Trade Name." So, for the purpose of Form 941 what is "Name (not your trade name)" vs. "Trade Name"? Simple answer is: just make sure in the field "Name (not your trade name) you have your business name as you have filed with IRS and other legal documents. That is the business name IRS has issued the EIN (FEIN) for. If "Name" field does not match the name IRS has on your business file your 941 form will be rejected. Your business may or may not have a "Trade Name" which is something like a trademark or what you may use in marketing or your business is known for other than the officially registered name. If you have one, you can include that in "Trade Name (if any)" field.
In Payroll co-op free payroll software in the 'Company Info' section make sure you have the company name exactly the same as the name you have on file with IRS. That name will be included in form 941 by the software.
